Youth on Mission

No longer a child but not yet an adult, teenagers are living through a unique and formative time of life. That’s why it is so important to be sure students have a firm foundation before they head off to make their way in the world. Missions discipleship for teens instills a strong biblical framework, awakening a passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ and providing opportunities for students to live out their faith in a tangible way. Missions discipleship guides students passionately devoted to Christ into avenues of service.
